Sorry if this has been discussed on here before, but who considers bucks with missing brow tines to be culls?

I don't think the one on the right is 13", but this pic is taken on MLD Level II property where each hunter is allowed 1 mature buck 8 points or better with minimum 14" inside, and no limit on culls.

If you're on MLD, or in a position where you are culling at all, one of the first things you look to try to eradicate is missing or weak brow tines, IMO.

I have not seen many bucks that had only one browtine keep only one the rest of their life. I have seen a lot of them get a second browtine. Most of them will not have big brows but they will have both. If I did not know what these bucks were last year I would keep them till next year since they are both young.

Those both look like young bucks. I wouldn't 'cull' those two this year, especially given that they each have one of two browtines.

Good point. I probably should of asked that question in my initial post. Unfortunately I can't say what these bucks looked like last year, but I was wondering if others had seen bucks develop brow tines as they matured where they were missing as youngsters.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

This is the same buck from a couple years ago.
He was a seven the year before and an eight the following year. He did grow a short brow.

Looks like a genetic problem, but both are a little young for culls
